I haven’t updated this blog for a few weeks now. Been too busy for this blog. The new semester has begun, I’ve started working on my website and my mum is in Shanghai (sharing my dorm room!).
So I’ve been trying to get back on track with the studies, trying to get more members in my site forum & I’ve also been sleeping on the floor.
I’m about to go nuts with the lack of privacy. Worst of all, my room is even smaller than I am so one can only imagine what the place looks like with 2 people living in it.
With my mum in the city I’ve been spending far beyond my weekly budget – this past 1 and a half weeks I’ve spent over RMB 2000. I’m no white expat with a good job – I’m a student without a job…so yeah that’s really beyond my budget.
My mum’s supposed to be here for another 2 weeks and I’ll have to get her out on a few dates if I need a bit of privacy…or I’ll seriously go nuts.
Apart from the privacy issue I’m finding it really tough to get back on track with my studies. Mainly because my mum’s here mainly to SHOP…and anyone’s got to be out of their mind if they think I’m not undergoing any peer pressure. Just this afternoon I had a 5-hour class and right before I walked out the door I turned towards my mum and said “I’m not going to class…I think I’ll go to Carrefour instead.”
20 minutes later we were shopping for a cheap football for Dominuque and yours truly was the one pushing the shopping trolley.
I hate school, it’s bloody waste of time. I sit in class only capable of understanding 20-25% of what’s happening. To make matters worse nobody cares to befriend me and if I were to be friendly they’d brush me off or they’d forget we were friends one week later. I only have 1 friend in class…and she seems to be tired of me already. How would you feel? It’s difficult enough having language barriers. On top of that you have deal with your nasty-ass unfriendly Chinese classmates, the teacher’s unwillingness to help out (or unwillingness to devote their time to the foreign students than the local students).
To add on to all that bullcrap, the class prefect is told to pass-on all the news to the entire class and the news never gets to me. Esp. because there’s a male prefect and a female prefect: the male prefect announces the news at the male dorms while the female prefect announces the news at the female dorms. What about the foreign students dorms? So it’s not that I don’t pay attention – it’s just that the most important news are left for the prefects to spread around – or “under-spread” rather.
I hate school here. If I had about a hundred thousand dollars I’d drop out. At this point in my life I really do understand women who would marry guys for their money. Why the heck not? We marry someone because we want our dreams fulfilled, period. To be narrow-minded is to look at this situation from one point of view. Well, it’s 2007 and it’s about time I further developed my open-mindedness. If women want to marry guys with a whole lot of cash, why not? That’s what marriage is about – to fulfill our dreams. You give me money & feed my ass, and I’ll be here to do your laundry & prove to your mum that you’re not gay. A marriage of convenience; an eye for an eye; you scratch my back & I’ll scratch yours…that kinda thing.
Women who marry guys for their money are actually intelligent women. You’re more likely to have the guy wrapped around your little finger because if he does something really wrong he just might lose that car in the garage that he loves so much…and a few hundred thousand dollars to go with it.
So yeah, at this point I’d marry a guy for his money, hope he gets me out of this misery and live happily ever after without my bachelor’s degree. Yippee. Hahahoohoo…I actually just thought up of the above…I’m gonna have to re-consider all that when/if I get up tomorrow morning.
OK, I’m done updating for now…are you happy now Afropins? LMAO. It’s 3:15am and I’ve got classes from 8am-5:30pm…I’m developing a slight sore throat (thanks to my exceedingly generous mum) and I really do hope I come up with the fever before class…
